Final Fantasy V
Last Updated: 01-12-2013
My inspiration: I thought it would be great to have a job mastery headband and wear giant stars over my head.
Once I decided on making that headband, I needed some FF5 character to be. Faris is obviously the best choice and my favorite... but honestly she's just not recognizable. At all. Bartz is at least in Dissidia wearing his oldschool FF5 outfit, though it's an alt costume. I figured enough people had played Dissidia that surely someone would know what I was going for.
Bartz is a pretty good character as far as FF heroes go. He's one of 3 non emo main characters (the others being Zidane, who I cosplayed a million years ago, and Vaan, who doesn't wear a shirt). He has a weird bromance going on with his chocobo. And, more importantly, he's a total pimp since what other game has 1 guy and 3 girls for your entire party??
He's also my favorite and best character to use in Dissidia so that maybe had some influence on this costume.
This outfit is basically what he wears in Ex Mode in Dissidia, but I like his original poofy red hair better. Even though he uses everybody's weapons and I'd love to have a buster sword & gunblade, I went with the Brave Blade since it's actually in FF5.
